Community Orchard Presents: Tracking Critters in the Urban Garden

Animal trails are all around us and all it takes are careful eyes and a little practice to spot them.  As part of its continuing free series of monthly classes, The Community Orchard of West Seattle will host local tracker Pete McGlenn of Seattle Tracking & Awareness School to provide a look at how common species interact with their local environment. You’ll learn how and where these animals move and how to identify their tracks and signs in your own backyard & gardens.

July Community Forum: Basics of Beekeeping

Location: West Seattle Senior Center, 4217 SW Oregon Street, West Seattle

PSBA Honey will be for sale at tonight’s meeting!

Did you know that it’s OK for you to raise honeybees in the city of Seattle?

Having your own bee hive means that your garden will be very well pollinated, you’ll have a lot of fun, and probably end up getting more honey than you know what to do with.  It’s a very rewarding hobby, and will forever change the way you see the insects around you.  So what does it take to keep bees, and how much does it cost?  Join representatives from the Puget Sound Beekeepers Association as we learn about the Basics of Beekeeping!
